2018 Preseason Coaches Poll

In their collective infinite wisdom (?), the NCAA coaches have again forced themselves to make a list and check it absolutely no more than once in order to deliver the preseason poll to us poor peasants.

Let’s dissect.

-Oklahoma received 33 first-place votes, Florida 10, and LSU 7. Sadly, there were no random first-place votes this year for Hamline or Winona State or a school that doesn’t even exist anymore, and I’m really disappointed. TRY BETTER.

-No surprise to see two-time defending champion Oklahoma get the first spot, though the coaches did invert LSU and Florida from last season’s finish. I made the same decision to promote Florida in my rankings based on the strength of Florida’s freshman class and returning routines, and I presume the coaches had the same reasoning. They’ve clearly forgiven Florida after dumping the Gators to 5th in last year’s preseason poll.

2018 Balance Beam Situation Preseason Rankings

December has arrived, which means it is officially time to unveil the 6th annual Balance Beam Situation Preseason Rankings. It’s like the coaches poll, except I’ve been paying attention.

Last season, I got all the Super Six teams and almost went perfect on the final Super Six order (just flip-flopping Utah and Alabama), which was my best showing yet, following 2016’s disaster. Due for another slump. Here we go.


1. Florida Gators

Florida returns each and every lineup routine from last season’s third-place finish, while casually adding the best freshman class in the country. All that combines to create the strongest and most accomplished roster of any school in the country. In the final season with Baker and McMurtry, this is Jenny’s time.

2. Oklahoma Sooners

What, am I supposed to rank the two-time defending champions first or something? Too easy. Oklahoma returns a more than championship-capable roster that nonetheless will have to improve on last season’s quality in order to fend off challengers that will expect to be better this time around.

3. LSU Tigers

LSU had the title within its grasp last season after a stellar semifinal performance but ultimately came up an inch short. Yet again. The flame of hope has not yet died given the talent remaining on the roster, but without Ashleigh Gnat, LSU will be in search of a new scoring leader.

4. Alabama Crimson Tide

Alabama’s much-touted depth will be put to the test this season as the Tide will have to manage without some evergreen routines that the team had come to depend on for what felt like 15 seasons. Alabama will hope to use the talent and status of Bailie Key, the single most accomplished freshman in the country, to return to its rightful place in the big four.

5. UCLA Bruins

The song is the same for the Bruins, with bars and beam that can beat any team. Questions over whether the vault start values will be competitive enough—and whether the floor will be big and consistent enough—keep the Bruins down just a notch below some of the biggest contenders. The uncertain status of Madison Kocian this season also raises doubts. UCLA needs her.

6. Utah Utes

The rule is to underestimate Utah at your own risk. The Utes will be in the hunt, but the retirement of Schwab means that Tessen’s return from injury may just help Utah tread water. Is the smaller freshman class strong enough to improve the lineup quality over last season?

7. Denver Pioneers

There are plenty of question marks over Denver, from the depth on vault and bars to the departure of Sam Ogden, but the team finished 9th last season, returns star Maddie Karr for another year, and has a hearty collection of new multi-event contributors to bolster some lineups. Denver’s time as the surprising dark horse is not over.

8. Michigan Wolverines

The temptation is to demote Michigan because of the losses of Artz and Chiarelli, two crucial contributors who will be very difficult to replace in those lineups, but Michigan should get enough routines from injury comebacks and freshmen (no huge stars, but a team effort) to reach somewhere close to the same level.

9. Kentucky Wildcats

A year stronger and dropping zero routines from last season’s near run to nationals, Kentucky is poised for another successful season—ranking 5th in the nation in returning routine scores. That makes predicting the Wildcats finally to make nationals after all these years an irresistible prospect.

10. Nebraska Cornhuskers

Nebraska is not without concerns for the 2018 season, with the need to replace the Lambert/Laeng routines swirling, along with the injury status of intended freshman star Kynsee Roby who missed the end of the 2017 JO season. Still, we all always expect Nebraska to pull it together enough to get by, and this season should be no exception.

11. Boise State Broncos

It’s easy to forget that Boise State spent most of last season ranked between 7th and 12th, but what lingers is the memory that the Broncos were another heartbreaking near miss at regionals in 2017 after being seeded to advance. With enough quality returning to keep up the pace of last season’s scores on most events, expect Boise State to make another run.

12. Washington Huskies

The ultimate 8th-place finish last season probably overstated Washington’s true place in the hierarchy of NCAA gymnastics, but it does come with some perks, like getting ranked in the top-12 again the following preseason. We just need to see how well the Huskies are able to replace those Duranczyk and Yacalis scores to stay up in this territory.

13. Georgia Bulldogs

Gotta keep things spicy, you know. Georgia is in a period of flux, coming off a weak 12th-place showing at 2017 nationals, adjusting to a new coaching staff with its own well-established way of doing things, and dealing with far too many injuries. It’s easy to be pessimistic about this season’s chances. Still, a team with Snead, Dickson, Schild, and Oakley all healthy would actually be a good bet to make nationals and do better than 13th. If that happens.

14. California Golden Bears

Cal is the hardest team of them all to rank because typically when a school loses an entire team worth of routines in one year, as Cal basically did after last season, hopes aren’t high. Yet, with Williams and Keelen returning from injury, along with an exciting freshman class, this could very well be a huge season for Cal. In the end, Cal’s potential success right now is based on too many unknowns to be too bullish about nationals chances. Yet.

15. Missouri Tigers

Missouri should be a sleeper hit again in 2018 after finishing last season at 17th, returning all competition routines, and getting Morgan Porter back from season-ending injury. The big question this season is whether the Tigers can get the road scores to go along with those home 197s this time around.

16. Oregon State Beavers

Expectations are low for Oregon State this season given the massive exodus in essential routines that will not be replaced by the new class, meaning it’s very easy to see an 11th place last year translate into missing nationals this season. Can Dessaints, Yanish, and company keep things 196y?


17. Stanford Cardinal

After the disaster that was last season, 17th seems weirdly optimistic and yet at the same time totally pessimistic for a roster with this much talent. Price and the freshmen could make up an exceptionally good team, but it’s too many ifs right now. The roster is still too small to feel comfortable about fully competitive lineups, and the freshmen all have to pan out. They have to.

18. Auburn Tigers

Auburn’s post-Atkinson/Demers/Kluz slump proved larger than anyone expected last season as the Tigers spent most of the year ranked outside the top 20. Things should get better this season with a lineup-bolstering freshman class, but it’s hard to find the star power on this roster right now to expect Auburn to challenge for the nationals spots.

19. Arkansas Razorbacks

The Razorbacks are another side poised for a comeback in 2018 after the season that shall not be named. With Amanda Wellick ready to return from injury and a couple accomplished L10s coming in, there should be a little less “we need you to do floor even though you don’t have a floor routine” this year.

20. llinois Fighting Illini

Getting Mary Jane Horth back for a fifth year means that Illinois retains the lion’s share of important routines from last season’s performance and should remain a threat on beam. Now, are there enough new sets to move up out of the #20 section?

21. Iowa Hawkeyes

Iowa had a breakthrough season last year, nestling itself comfortably into the teens and becoming a legitimate spoiler at regionals (coming just a tenth of a point short of upsetting Oregon State). But without Drenth and Metcalf in 2018, will the team be able to retain that same level?

22. George Washington Colonials

GW has one more year of the class that gave this team a national footprint, so expect Drouin-Allaire, Winstanley, Mermelstein, Zois, Pfeiler to keep the Colonials at a similar level to the last few seasons, earning a solid place in the top 25.

23. Iowa State Cyclones

Watch out for Iowa State as a sneaky little underdog this season, a team that finished 29th in 2017 and returns every competition routine for 2018, including 14 sets with an RQS of 9.8 or better. Upward from there.

24. Southern Utah Thunderbirds

Last season was Southern Utah’s big opportunity to break into the big time, spending most of the year ranked inside the top 20. No team lost more important scores to graduation than SUU did, so it’s reasonable to expect some regression in 2018, but a new freshman class of 10 is supposed to mitigate that loss.

25. Minnesota Golden Gophers

I went back and forth about Minnesota or West Virginia for this spot, but the introduction of Lexy Ramler should not be lost among all the discussions of impact freshmen on bigger teams. Ramler is a potential NCAA star with the ability to reinvigorate every lineup through Mable-level scores.

 

National Team Rankings – December 2017

How It Works
Taking into account all scores recorded at competitions in the last six months, each nation is given a team total based on how its best-scoring group of five senior gymnasts would do in a hypothetical 3-up, 3-count team final.

Each individual’s best scores may come from any official competition (they need not all be from the same meet), and whichever group of five gymnasts would produce the highest score is the one selected.

Countries that have not shown enough senior routines in the last six months to fill a 3-up, 3-count team on each event are not included.

Rankings will be updated on the 1st of each month, and scores will expire after six months in order to provide the most up-to-date snapshot of where nations are at the current moment. These current rankings include only scores from June 2017–November 2017.

Entering the rankings this month were Chile, Peru, and Panama, while leaving the rankings were North Korea, Poland, and India,  temporarily without enough scores on each event in the last six months to put together a team.

Last month’s ranking is in parentheses.

167.833 42.900 43.333 41.900 39.700

166.365 42.916 42.733 40.466 40.250
France also took a hit this month as the important scores from May’s French Championship, particularly on beam, expired from the rankings, but the loss was mitigated by a couple season highs on various events from MDJDS, Bossu, and Charpy at Massilia.
8. (20) UKRAINE – 166.124
Diana Varinska 13.716 14.583 13.650 13.250

165.698 43.550 40.850 40.716 40.582
Canada was another nation bit by having its national championship from May drop off the rankings this month, losing the beam score from Onyshko in particular, which had been propping up that total.
10. (7) ROMANIA – 165.512
Carmen Glavan 13.266 11.666 13.600 12.900
Carmen Ghiciuc 12.066 12.833 13.000 12.166

165.512 42.132 40.232 42.932 40.216
Ponor did a crying goodbye performance at the Mexican Open, so I’m giving in and considering her retired, at least for the moment. Her scores have therefore been removed from Romania’s picture. It’s much less pretty now.
11. (12) GREAT BRITAIN – 164.198
Amy Tinkler 14.533 13.600 12.800 13.500
Phoebe Turner 14.333 10.900 11.600 12.650

163.515 41.600 40.166 41.016 40.733
The final pre-injury Serie A scores for Martina Maggio fell off the rankings this month, accounting for Italy’s drop of multiple points and two ranking spots.
13. (13) BELGIUM – 163.365
Axelle Klinckaert 13.700 12.100 11.950 13.150

163.365 41.100 42.383 40.233 39.649
Axelle Klinckaert and Senna Deriks are back and competing the all-around again, providing a little bit more depth and allowing Belgium to remain steady in 13th while other nations plummet.
14. (15) NETHERLANDS – 161.933
Eythora Thorsdottir 14.300 12.667 13.067 13.033

159.881 42.199 39.216 39.250 39.216
Ilaria Kaeslin is back from the dead this month, getting a very useful beam score at the Swiss Cup that reinvigorated Switzerland’s total, a whole point just because of that one routine.
17. (16) HUNGARY – 158.183
Zsofia Kovacs 14.000 14.100 14.000 13.067

158.183 41.866 38.900 38.800 38.617
It’s been a while since Zsofia Kovacs was at full strength, meaning Hungary has less to draw on than usual and exchanges places with Switzerland.
18. (22) COLOMBIA – 156.199
Melba Avendano 13.350 13.150 10.950 13.000

National Team Rankings – November 2017

How It Works
Taking into account all scores recorded at competitions in the last six months, each nation is given a team total based on how its best-scoring group of five senior gymnasts would do in a hypothetical 3-up, 3-count team final.

Each individual’s best scores may come from any official competition (they need not all be from the same meet), and whichever group of five gymnasts would produce the highest score is the one selected.

Countries that have not shown enough senior routines in the last six months to fill a 3-up, 3-count team on each event are not included.

Rankings will be updated on the 1st of each month, and scores will expire after six months in order to provide the most up-to-date snapshot of where nations are at the current moment. These current rankings include only scores from May 2017–October 2017.

Entering the rankings this month was Malta, while leaving the rankings were Azerbaijan and Bulgaria, temporarily without enough scores on each event in the last six months to put together a team.

Last month’s ranking is in parentheses.

175.249

44.966 43.500 44.050 42.733
It’s a bit strange that the current world champion wouldn’t be among the best-scoring US five, but across the nations you’ll see fewer score increases than perhaps would be expected after worlds because the scores at worlds were so much lower (particularly on beam) than in other competitions. Even those who had great meets weren’t recording season highs, so Morgan Hurd for instance does not have a top-3 score in the US on any apparatus in the last six months, despite being world champion.

Many nations, including the US, will see their scores decrease this month because the April scores from Jesolo and Euros have come off the rankings, the loss of Jesolo numbers accounting for some upheaval in the US group and the addition of Frazier.

3. (2) JAPAN – 172.900
Asuka Teramoto 15.000 14.000 14.400 13.766
Mai Murakami 14.700 13.900 14.350 14.800
Sae Miyakawa 15.100 11.600 10.550 14.100

Hitomi Hatakeda 14.150 14.500 13.400 13.300
172.900 44.800 42.400 42.950 42.750
One of the few who recorded a season high at worlds was Mai Murakami on bars during her fantastic qualification day, raising Japan’s total by a couple tenths.
4. (4) CHINA – 172.165
Wang Yan 14.500 13.400 14.133 13.800
Luo Huan 13.650 14.566 14.750 13.150
Liu Tingting 14.300 14.350 15.300 13.500
Mao Yi 14.367 13.700 13.000 13.433
Fan Yilin 0.000 15.166 13.567 11.467
172.165 43.167 44.082 44.183 40.733
China also received a slight boost from bars at worlds, with Fan Yilin improving on her 2017 best by a couple tenths in that title-winning performance.
5. (5) BRAZIL – 168.350
Rebeca Andrade 15.150 14.450 0.000 0.000
Flavia Saraiva 0.000 13.750 14.000 13.850
Thais Fidelis 14.100 12.800 14.000 14.200
Jade Barbosa 13.400 13.200 11.250 13.000
Daniele Hypolito 14.100 12.750 13.750 13.800
168.350 43.350 41.400 41.750 41.850
Brazil loses a few tenths this month with some useful scores from the currently injured Andrade and Saraiva coming off the rankings, though not enough to jeopardize the coveted fifth-place spot.
6. (6) FRANCE – 168.316
M De Jesus Dos Santos 14.500 14.500 14.100 13.250
Alison Lepin 13.700 14.550 12.866 12.750
Marine Boyer 13.950 13.200 14.900 13.600
Juliette Bossu 13.800 13.900 12.550 13.600
Coline Devillard 14.600 0.000 0.000 0.000
168.316 43.050 42.950 41.866 40.450
Qualification at worlds saw De Jesus Dos Santos record six-month highs on vault and bars, increasing France’s total despite Devillard’s vault scores fro Euros coming off the rankings.
7. (7) ROMANIA – 167.996
Catalina Ponor 0.000 0.000 14.600 14.133
Alexandra Mihai 13.750 0.000 12.967 12.433
Larisa Iordache 14.800 14.533 15.566 14.266
Laura Jurca 13.666 12.866 12.200 12.200
Ioana Crisan 13.666 13.000 13.766 13.050
167.996 42.216 40.399 43.932 41.449
Expect Romania to remain in a surprisingly solid position as along as those scores from Romanian nationals hang around. I typically remove those who have retired from the rankings, but with Ponor still planning to compete in a couple of meets and also being Ponor (you’ve retired like 15 times already…), I’m leaving her on for now.
8. (10) CANADA – 167.453
Isabela Onyshko 13.400 12.734 14.034 13.234
Shallon Olsen 14.800 12.750 12.700 13.133

Rose Woo 14.050 13.567 13.634 13.100
Ellie Black 14.650 14.400 14.400 13.467
167.453 43.950 41.601 42.068 39.834
As has been the story for a few of these nations, a good bars score goes a long way, and Ellie Black’s 14.400 from qualification at worlds helped in increasing Canada’s total while many of the European nations dropped this month.
9. (9) GERMANY – 166.882
Kim Bui 13.600 14.233 12.600 13.050
Tabea Alt 14.500 14.200 13.533 12.933

Sarah Voss 13.750 11.750 14.100 13.150

166.882 42.350 43.199 41.783 39.550
Germany lost a series of important floor scores from Euros, accounting for the drop in total scores despite a successful worlds. The Germans were the victim of having a great worlds on beam, where the scores were so much lower than any other meet that their accomplishments don’t show up here at all.
10. (11) ITALY – 166.482
Giada Grisetti 14.000 13.800 13.566 12.666
Desiree Carofiglio 14.050 12.700 13.300 13.750

164.198 42.866 41.666 39.083 40.583
The most unfortunate month belongs to the Brits. With the scores from Euros coming off, that means neither Downie has competed in the last six months, leaving GB quite depleted in terms of the scores that can be chosen. GB drops five ranking spots and four whole points without the Downie scores.
13. (13) BELGIUM – 163.531
Axelle Klinckaert 0.000 13.650 0.000 0.000
Nina Derwael 13.566 15.033 13.900 13.366

Dorien Motten 13.750 12.950 11.250 12.900
163.531 41.150 42.583 40.233 39.565
The bars success for Derwael (and Hermans, who increased her total by several tenths) at worlds was counteracted by Senna Deriks now having not competed in the last six months, meaning Belgium basically stays the same as an overall group.
14. (15) SPAIN – 162.081
Claudia Colom 13.650 13.150 13.150 12.900

15. (14) NETHERLANDS – 161.567
Eythora Thorsdottir 14.300 12.667 13.067 13.033
Sanne Wevers 0.000 13.800 14.100 0.000

Naomi Visser 13.400 12.900 13.000 12.600
Elisabeth Geurts 14.167 12.500 12.200 12.033
161.567 42.967 39.367 40.167 39.066
The Netherlands could have used some big numbers at worlds with those Euros scores coming off, but with a not-100% Eythora and the Weverses not hitting well on beam, the Netherlands did not get those needed numbers. It was really only the big bars score from Sanne that keeps the Dutch afloat, and they’ll need some more Netherlandsy beam numbers in the coming months to get the ranking back into a more competitive zone.
16. (16) HUNGARY – 159.618
Zsofia Kovacs 14.600 14.734 14.000 13.067

158.714 42.199 39.166 38.133 39.216
Steingruber’s continued improvements at worlds saw the Swiss increase their vault and floor scores by multiple points. This was undermined somewhat by Kaeslin’s early-year beam scores coming off the rankings, but Switzerland still ultimately saw a gain of 6 tenths over last month.
18. (18) MEXICO – 157.672

152.016 40.366 37.550 37.600 36.500
Iceland saw a number of useful scores and gymnasts drop off the rankings this month, but some helpful results from the post-worlds Northern European Championships helped the team stay in vaguely the same zone.

154.516 40.467 34.783 39.067 37.666
Poland falls dramatically this month, having lost the bars score from Cal’s Alma Kuc (who has now not competed for Poland in the last six months). Not sending any gymnasts to worlds did not help the project.

With most of the Danish scores more than six months old, Denmark falls rather far this month. Very little besides the scores from worlds are available to be used, but to ensure that Denmark had enough routines, I added in a vaulter from the Faroe Islands, since the Faroes fall under the kingdom of Denmark and do not have their own designation in the FIG.

National Team Rankings – October 2017

Getting this up a few days early so that it’s here before worlds.

How It Works
Taking into account all scores recorded at competitions in the last six months, each nation is given a team total based on how its best-scoring group of five senior gymnasts would do in a hypothetical 3-up, 3-count team final.

Each individual’s best scores may come from any official competition (they need not all be from the same meet), and whichever group of five gymnasts would produce the highest score is the one selected.

Countries that have not shown enough senior routines in the last six months to fill a 3-up, 3-count team on each event are not included.

Rankings will be updated on the 1st of each month (or thereabouts), and scores will expire after six months in order to provide the most up-to-date snapshot of where nations are at the current moment. These current rankings include only scores from April 2017–September 2017.

Entering the rankings this month was Egypt, while leaving the rankings was Greece, temporarily without enough scores on each event in the last six months to put together a team.

Last month’s ranking is in parentheses.

44.450 44.350 44.050 42.650
Scores from American Cup came off the rankings this month, lowering the vault high for Ragan Smith, though it did not affect the team total as her vault score wasn’t counting anyway.
3. (2) JAPAN – 172.600
Asuka Teramoto 15.000 14.000 14.400 13.766
Mai Murakami 14.800 13.500 14.350 14.800

4. (4) CHINA – 171.899
Wang Yan 14.500 13.233 14.133 13.800
Luo Huan 13.650 14.533 14.750 13.150

171.899 43.167 43.816 44.183 40.733
Chinese National Games provided China with a significant two-point surge, just not quite enough to catch Japan. Most important to the team score were the (re)introduction of Wang Yan’s season-high floor, Liu Tingting’s DTY, and Fan Yilin’s season-high bars, three extraordinarily vital routines for China at this point. And yes, that is Mao Yi you see. Back from the dead (?), her floor total at National Games is currently the third-best floor score for Chinese seniors this year.
5. (8) BRAZIL – 168.700
Rebeca Andrade 15.150 14.450 13.550 13.650
Flavia Saraiva 14.300 13.750 14.100 13.900
Thais Fidelis 14.100 12.800 14.000 14.200
Jade Barbosa 13.400 13.200 11.250 13.000
Daniele Hypolito 14.100 12.750 13.750 13.800
168.700 43.550 41.400 41.850 41.900
Brazil made another singificant leap this month (now having risen from 10th in the August rankings to 5th for October), thanks to world cup performances from Andrade and Fidelis. The inclusion of the Andrade Amanar and 6.1 bars D, as well as Fidelis’s season high on beam, saw Brazil gain another full point in the team total.
6. (7) FRANCE – 168.165
M De Jesus Dos Santos 14.366 14.450 14.100 13.250
Alison Lepin 13.700 14.550 12.866 12.750
Marine Boyer 13.950 12.850 14.900 13.600
Juliette Bossu 13.800 13.900 12.550 13.600
Coline Devillard 14.633 10.800 12.433 12.166
168.165 42.949 42.900 41.866 40.450
France actually lost a few tenths this month with the scores from March’s club championship coming off the rankings, but the loss was less severe than that of similarly ranked countries (and mitigated by a couple gains at the Paris World Cup), meaning France ended up gaining a single spot in the rankings.
7. (6) GREAT BRITAIN – 168.111
Amy Tinkler 14.600 13.600 12.800 13.500
Phoebe Turner 14.333 13,000 13.200 12,650
Ellie Downie 14.566 14.300 13.466 14.066
Becky Downie 0.000 14.600 13.330 0.000
Claudia Fragapane 0.000 12.900 13.750 14.000
168.111 43.499 42.500 40.546 41.566
GB loses one ranking spot and about six overall tenths with the scores from British Championships coming off the rankings, though world cup scores from Tinkler this month did help save things a little. The last of the Downies’ scores before their injuries will come off next month, so GB needs some strong totals at worlds to protect against a significant drop.
8. (12) ROMANIA – 168.079
Catalina Ponor 0.000 0.000 14.600 14.133
Alexandra Mihai 13.750 0.000 12.967 12.433

168.079 42.216 40.432 43.932 41.499
Amazing what a little Romanian Nationals scoring can do! Romania gains more than three whole points this month, along with four ranking positions. Everything is fine now! No need to worry!
9. (5) GERMANY – 167.882
Kim Bui 13.600 14.200 12.733 13.566
Tabea Alt 14.500 14.200 13.700 13.333
Pauline Schaefer 14.100 13.050 14.150 13.533
Sarah Voss 13.750 11.750 14.100 13.150
Elisabeth Seitz 13.600 14.750 13.400 12.700
167.882 42.350 43.150 41.950 40.432
A bad month for Germany saw the scores from the German Team Cup and the Stuttgart World Cup and Team Cup all expire, depriving them of tenths across the board and totaling a full point in losses. It turns out, many of Germany’s good bars and beam scores were from domestic competitions quite early in the year.
10. (9) CANADA – 167.186
Isabela Onyshko 13.400 12.734 14.034 13.234

The expiration of Shallon Olsen’s 2017-high floor score from Gymnix dropped Canada a couple tenths, but nothing too signficant. Moors has the highest floor score for Canada this year, but because she doesn’t have any other countable events, she wouldn’t increase the team total, potentially foreshadowing a selection conundrum for next year.

164.700 43.200 41.750 39.725 40.025
Those early-year world cup events produced some important beam and floor scores for Little and Mizzen, their absence now seeing Australia drop about a half point.

163.466 42.450 39.233 41.533 39.366
With Eythora, Volleman, and the Weverseseses all getting back into competition, it was a good month for the Netherlands as they gained nearly a point on the total from last month, coming very close to moving back in front of rival Belgium. It was the vault and floor scores from Volleman from the Dutch Invitational that provided much-needed boosts on those pieces. She’s not the flashiest of the Dutch, and therefore gets kind of ignored, but her leg-event contributions will be essential in coming years.

160.586 42.667 39.568 39.734 38.617
A couple improvements for Devai (bars) and Al-Salty (beam) at the September world cups ultimately gave Hungary a six-tenth lift over last month.

158.097 40.899 39.166 39.433 38.599
A little Steingruber goes a long way. We saw nothing close to peak Steingruber in her return to competition at the Swiss Championships, but her mere presence with vaguely countable scores is enough to help Switzerland gain a point and a half over last month and two ranking spots.

The big winner this month was South Africa. Scores from the South African Championships allowed SA to gain over 11 total points and 25 spots in the rankings, moving up to an unheard-of 20th. Improvements came due to everyone on everything.

The Czech Republic loses over six tenths this month, a result of the untimely retirement of the Merkova twins and their subsequent removal from the team picture.

Lots of change in store for Ukraine this month. The expiration of the scores from the Stella Zakharova Cup brought significant losses, but the season highs on the world cup circuit from the top four gymnasts brought nearly significant gains, ultimately coming to a loss of about six tenths.

Norway’s latest FIG meet provided the opportunity for great improvement on the previous scores, with Ingrid Hafenbradl making her season debut and Martine Skregelid improving her 2017-best on floor by nearly a point. In all, Norway gained almost two total points over last month, along with four ranking spots.

Egypt debuts in the rankings at #32 this month after a successful run at the world cup events from Farah Hussein, Farah Salem, and the veteran Sherine El Zeiny. Not being hopeless on bars is a huge advantage over other teams in this ranking zone.

It was another big month for Slovenia, marked by people going to world cup meets and actually doing events that aren’t vault, cultivating some much more competitive scores on beam and floor. Slovenia gains almost 4 points over last month and seven ranking spots.

A few new scores from Szombathely here and there helped Slovakia move up a couple spots in the rankings as other nations found it much more difficult to stay above water. Many, like Austra below, lost critical points from spring national championships that for some reason haven’t been able to be repeated at international competitions. Hm.

It’s perhaps a sad state of affairs where getting a new 9 on bars and new 10 on floor make a big difference for a nation like Bulgaria, but that’s where we are. Better?

National Team Rankings – September 2017

How It Works
Taking into account all scores recorded at competitions in the last six months, each nation is given a team total based on how its best-scoring group of five senior gymnasts would do in a hypothetical 3-up, 3-count team final.

Each individual’s best scores may come from any official competition (they need not all be from the same meet), and whichever group of five gymnasts would produce the highest score is the one selected.

Countries that have not shown enough senior routines so far this year to fill a 3-up, 3-count team on each event are not included.

Rankings will be updated on the 1st of each month (or…the day before that…), and scores will expire after six months in order to provide the most up-to-date snapshot of where nations are at the current moment. So, these current rankings include only scores from March 2017–August 2017.

Nations entering the rankings this month were South Korea, Slovenia, Indonesia, South Africa, Thailand, and Vietnam. Leaving the rankings was Belarus, now without enough scores in the last six months to put together a team.

Last month’s ranking is in parentheses.

Previous rankings
August 2017
July 2017
June 2017

1. (3) RUSSIA – 176.991
Elena Eremina 14.466 15.175 14.450 14.275
Angelina Melnikova 14.625 14.825 14.825 14.425
Anastasia Ilyankova 0.000 15.275 14.150 0.000
Maria Paseka 15.000 12.700 0.000 0.000
Maria Kharenkova 13.725 12.100 15.150 14.500
176.991 44.091 45.275 44.425 43.200
Don’t freak out. It’s just Russian Cup. But, these are the scores. Most of the top Russians increased their previous bests by a half point (at least) on several events, but the big boon was the Paseka vault score from Universiade and the Kharenkova beam and floor scores, areas in which Russia had been trailing well behind the US and needed a third big contributor. They got one.
2. (1) UNITED STATES – 175.500
Ragan Smith 14.433 14.550 15.350 14.350
Riley McCusker 14.600 15.050 14.500 13.900
Jade Carey 14.700 0.000 14.050 14.400
Jordan Chiles 15.150 14.000 14.200 13.700
Ashton Locklear 0.000 14.750 14.000 0.000

175.500

44.450 44.350 44.050 42.650
The US also increased its totals significantly because of the national championship, just not quite to a Russian Cup degree. The Jordan Chiles Amanar score got her into the picture, bumping up the US vault total, and the season-best floor numbers from Smith and Carey rendered the floor total more competitive than it had been before.
3. (2) JAPAN – 172.600
Asuka Teramoto 15.000 14.000 14.400 13.766
Mai Murakami 14.800 13.500 14.350 14.800
Sae Miyakawa 15.100 11.950 12.700 14.100
Yuna Hiraiwa 13.850 111.150 14.200 13.850
Hitomi Hatakeda 14.234 14.500 13.400 13.600
172.600 44.900 42.000 42.950 42.750
Japan also falls one spot this month because of Russia’s boon, but the Japanese did increase their team total as well because of Teramoto’s performance at the Universiade as well as the Japan Student Championships, the most help coming from the massive 14.800 Murakami received on floor. We’ve seen a lot of big floor scores this month from a lot of countries, he says skeptically.
4. (4) CHINA – 169.682
Wang Yan 14.400 13.000 13.700 0.000
Luo Huan 13.650 14.533 14.750 13.150
Liu Tingting 13.700 14.366 15.300 13.566
Liu Jinru 14.550 12.550 12.250 12.850
Zhu Xiaofang 0.000 14.350 14.167 12.350
169.682 42.650 43.249 44.217 39.566
China hasn’t competed in several months, allowing the other nations to increase their leads, something China will hope to rectify at the upcoming Chinese National Games. This month’s total reflects a drop of a few tenths with Wang Yan’s floor score coming off the rankings (achieved in February), meaning China has to count a 12 on floor now.
5. (5) GERMANY – 168.864
Kim Bui 13.750 14.533 12.733 13.566
Tabea Alt 14.466 14.350 14.066 13.500

168.864 42.366 43.633 42.316 40.599
6. (6) GREAT BRITAIN – 168.724
Amy Tinkler 14.600 13.725 12.566 13.233
Alice Kinsella 13.750 13.391 14.050 13.150

7. (7) FRANCE – 168.365
M De Jesus Dos Santos 14.366 14.450 14.233 13.150
Louise Vanhille 13.700 14.033 13.550 12.866
Marine Boyer 13.950 13.033 14.900 13.600
Juliette Bossu 13.800 13.900 12.550 13.600
Coline Devillard 14.633 10.800 12.433 12.166
168.365 42.949 42.283 42.683 40.350
8. (10) BRAZIL – 167.650
Rebeca Andrade 15.000 13.800 13.550 13.650
Flavia Saraiva 14.300 13.750 14.100 13.900
Thais Fidelis 14.100 12.800 13.750 14.200
Jade Barbosa 13.400 13.200 11.250 13.000
Daniele Hypolito 13.700 12.750 13.750 13.800
167.650 43.400 40.750 41.600 41.900
The Brazilian Championship at the beginning of August allowed Brazil to add new scores from the old standbys Jade Barbosa and Daniele Hypolito to increase its total on all four events, particularly beam and floor.
9. (8) CANADA – 167.353
Isabela Onyshko 13.400 12.734 14.034 13.234
Shallon Olsen 14.800 12.750 12.700 13.467
Brittany Rogers 14.500 13.634 13.266 0.000
Rose Woo 14.050 13.567 13.634 13.100
Ellie Black 14.650 13.966 14.400 13.467
167.353 43.950 41.167 42.068 40.168
Strong numbers from Ellie Black everywhere and from Brittany Rogers on vault at Universiade allowed Canada to increase its total over last month by more than half a point, just not enough to keep pace with Brazil’s gains.
10. (9) ITALY – 166.216
Giada Grisetti 14.100 13.800 13.566 12.666
Desiree Carofiglio 14.000 13.200 13.350 13.750

11. (11) AUSTRALIA – 165.258
Emily Little 14.750 12.775 13.433 13.400
Rianna Mizzen 14.575 14.500 13.200 12.934
Georgia-Rose Brown 13.575 13.800 13.425 13.225

165.258 43.400 41.750 40.058 40.050
12. (15) ROMANIA – 164.915
Catalina Ponor 0.000 0.000 14.566 13.433
Alexandra Mihai 13.750 0.000 12.967 12.433

Ioana Crisan 13.600 13.100 13.150 13.100
164.915 41.800 40.250 42.282 40.583
Operation Larisa Will Save The Day And That’s Literally Our Only Plan came through again for Romania as Iordache’s 2017 debuts on vault and floor at Universiade gave Romania much-needed scores on those events that had been previously missing and/or paltry, singlehandedly raising the team total by over three points.
13. (12) BELGIUM – 163.631
Senna Deriks 13.800 14.033 12.250 13.450
Nina Derwael 13.650 14.800 13.900 12.966

14. (13) NETHERLANDS – 162.582
Eythora Thorsdottir 14.100 13.533 14.233 13.700

Naomi Visser 13.400 12.900 13.000 12.600
Elisabeth Geurts 13.950 11.700 12.200 11.850
162.582 42.450 39.233 41.533 39.366
The Netherlands loses nearly a point this month as Thorsdottir’s scores from the (shall we say) loosely scored Iceland meet in February come off the rankings.
15. (14) SPAIN – 162.215
Claudia Colom 13.650 11.750 13.150 12.900
Nora Fernandez 13.733 13.266 13.100 12.833

162.215 41.983 40.249 40.183 39.800
16. (16) HUNGARY – 159.938
Zsofia Kovacs 14.600 14.734 13.967 13.067

Noemi Jakab 12.567 12.334 11.967 12.534
159.938 42.667 39.302 39.468 38.501
Just a simple old vault from Boczogo at the Universiade gave Hungary a boost of nearly a half point. They really needed that third vault score.
17. (17) MEXICO – 157.672
Nicolle Castro 14.000 13.050 12.566 13.100
Jimena Moreno 13.466 12.850 12.550 12.740

With Malaysia ranking as a top-24 team now, it’s even more of a shame that they’re not sending any individuals to worlds this year.

National Team Rankings – August 2017

How It Works
Taking into account all scores recorded at competitions in the last six months, each nation is given a team total based on what its best-scoring group of five senior gymnasts would score in a hypothetical 3-up, 3-count team final.

Individual’s scores may come from any official competition (they need not all be from the same meet), and whichever group of five gymnasts would produce the highest score is the one selected.

Countries that have not shown enough senior routines so far this year to fill a 3-up, 3-count team on each event (i.e., Slovenia, New Zealand, South Korea) are not included.

Rankings will be updated on the 1st of each month, and scores will expire after six months in order to provide the most up-to-date snapshot of where nations are at the current moment (so these current rankings include scores from February 2017–July 2017).

Last month’s ranking is in parentheses.

44.000 44.350 43.600 41.900
Scores from U.S. Classic (and American Classic) saw the US gain nearly two points on its July 1st total, predominately the result of the massive beam score from Ragan Smith that dwarfs all other counting scores by more than a point, as well as the introduction of Jade Carey’s counting scores on three events.

168.864 42.366 43.633 42.316 40.599
Sarah Voss’s 14.1 on beam from a heretofore unknown mystery meet in Finland proves just enough to inch Germany up ahead of Great Britain for 5th.

162.215 41.983 40.249 40.183 39.800
The Spanish Championship provided an opportunity for Spain to move up in the rankings, gaining nearly two points in its previous total, largely the result of Ana Perez debuting her full difficulty on vault and floor to bump up those totals significantly. Most of her teammates also used the championship to pick up a tenth or two here and there.

Olivia Cimpian has been removed from Romania’s team, since it appears she has no intention of continuing to compete for Romania and is currently in citizenship limbo, which accounts for Romania’s fall in the rankings.

National Team Rankings — July 2017

How It Works
Using all scores recorded at competitions in the last six months, each nation is given a team total based on what its best-scoring group of five senior gymnasts would score in a hypothetical 3-up, 3-count team final.

Individual’s scores may come from any official competition (they need not all be from the same meet), and whichever group of five gymnasts would produce the highest score is the one selected.

Countries that have not shown enough senior routines so far this year to fill a 3-up, 3-count team on each event (i.e., Slovenia, New Zealand, South Korea) are not included.

Rankings will be updated on the 1st of each month, and scores will expire after six months in order to provide the most up-to-date snapshot of where nations are at the current moment.

Last month’s ranking is in parentheses. The full rankings from June 1st may be found here. Continue reading National Team Rankings — July 2017

National Team Rankings – June 2017

How It Works
Nations are ranked by what their best possible team of five senior gymnasts would score in a hypothetical 3-up, 3-count team final, using scores recorded so far in 2017.

Individual’s scores may come from any reported elite competition this year (the four event scores need not all be from the same meet), and whichever five gymnasts would produce the highest 3-up, 3-count total with those scores is the team used.

Countries that have not shown enough senior routines so far this year to fill a 5-3-3 team on each event (i.e., Slovenia, Slovakia, South Korea) are not included.

Rankings will be updated every two months, and scores will expire after six months, meaning only scores recorded in the last half-year are eligible to be counted.

Week 10 Rankings and Final RQS Scenarios

Here we are. The week before conference championships. Just one meet left to change your ranking and get to a less horrible position. At this point, we know the maximum RQSs and exactly where each team has a chance to end up in the rankings.

For reference, if the season were already over, the regionals placements would look like this:

Regional 1: Oklahoma, Kentucky, Nebraska (host)
Regional 2: LSU, Boise State, Missouri (presumed host: Arkansas)
Regional 3: UCLA, Oregon State, Washington (host)
Regional 4: Florida (host), Michigan, Cal
Regional 5: Utah, Georgia, Iowa (presumed host: Illinois)
Regional 6: Alabama, Denver, George Washington (presumed host: West Virginia)

For the presumed hosts, I just kind of guessed based on general geography.

The regionals tiebreaker for seeds/qualifying is the highest score that isn’t being used among the 6 for RQS.

In case you were curious, this year at regionals the #1 seeds will begin on bars, the #2 seeds will begin on vault, and the #3 seeds will begin on a bye before floor. That means the #1 seeds end on a bye (ughughughughughughugh), the #2 seeds end on floor, and the #3 seeds end on beam. Continue reading Week 10 Rankings and Final RQS Scenarios
